Clubs and Organizations

If you want to fully examine philosophical questions, you need to talk about them with others. Our department has many ways for you to connect with your classmates and others interested in philosophy around the state. 

Undergraduate Philosophy Club

Join us to discover more about yourself and the perspectives of others. We discuss questions like "What is reality?" and "Is there a best life?" in a respectful and relaxed environment. We're open to any major and you can find out more about our meetings on Garnet Gate
